Archives are created in an organisation
to support and manage work, to record why, when, where, in what capacity and
by whom what actions were carried out. Every citizen, every family is
archiving too. Archiving is preceded by archivalisation:
the conscious or unconscious choice (determined by social and cultural
factors) to consider something worth archiving. Archivistics is concerned
with questions such as what makes a society, an organisation
or an individual create and maintain archives the way they do and will a
better understanding of the way people create and maintain archives enable us
to make statements about an efficient and effective way of creating records?
We therefore look at societies, organizations and people that create
archives. This, I have named social and cultural archivistics. Its
object is the continuum of records creation, processing, and use in an
information society which depends of digital longevity.
